According to the National Meteorological Center, in the last two days, the average rainfall in Beijing was 157.8 millimeters per hour, with places that have exceeded 538 millimeters.
In addition, operations on 275 bus lines of the city’s Public Transportation Corporation remain affected, while several train routes in suburban areas suspended their service.
The neighboring province of Hebei also activated a high alert for storm, flood control and water-logging prevention in response to heavy rainfall.
The provincial weather observatory on Monday renewed a red warning for severe storms with rainfall likely to exceed 250 millimeters per hour in some areas.
According to experts, these weather conditions will continue to deteriorate until Tuesday, due to the impact of Typhoon Doksuri, which previously affected the country’s eastern territories.
China has a four-level weather warning system, in which red represents the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow and blue.
